I have wanted to get my hands on the relatively new Levenger inks for awhile. Since I just happened to be ordering a retirement gift for a business colleague, I used the opportunity to treat myself to their perennial six pack of inks. Below are two scans made from on a test page on Nava Notes paper and a glass dipping pen.
A few things to consider when viewing the scans:
- I decided to show the back because of the significant bleedthrough. In my view, it is the paper and not the ink (except for the Skies of Blue as explained below).
- I used a glass dipping pen. To be honest, I have never had much success or liked using glass dipping pen. I have tried to smooth the nib without success. As you can see, my results are mixed, at best. For some reason, I could not even get the glass dipping pen to write with the Skies of Blue; at one point, a giant blob dripped off the pen, and well, you can see what happened (sorry)!!
I would be interested in hearing which one(s) are your favourites, do you detest, are surprised by, etc.
